Olin isn't running for council again, but Lucarelli is

Incumbent Fred Olin did not file for re-election by Friday afternoon's deadline, meaning his tenure on the Port Orchard City Council will end next fall after one term.

Olin won his seat in 2007, defeating then-incumbent Rick Wyatt.

He has lived in Port Orchard for 42 years and was a loan officer for Olympic Northwest Mortgage and a retired education administrator and former classroom teacher. He is also a former real estate agent and associate broker.

Prior to serving on the city council, Olin  was a member of  the Port Orchard Revitalization Team.

In addition to newcomer Amy Miller, who filed for Olin's Position 5 seat earlier in the week, the field will also include Cindy Lucarelli, who ran unsuccessfully for John Clauson's Position 4 seat in 2007 and narrowly lost in 2009 to longtime Councilwoman Carolyn Powers.

Lucarelli is a former resident of Madison, Wis., where she owned a floral business for 21 years. She also owned an advertising business.

She moved to Port Orchard in 2002.

Lucarelli is a co-founder of a neighborhood association that was active in voicing concerns about building height during deliberations on the downtown plan.
